Renowned interviewer David Barsamian showcases his unique access to Chomky's thinking on a number of topics of contemporary and historical import. In an interview conducted after the important November 1999 "Battle in Seattle," Chomsky discusses prospects for building a movement to challenge corporate domination of the media, the environment, and even our private lives. Chomsky also engages in a discussion of his ideas on language and mind, making his important linguistic insights accessible to the lay reader. Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is a world-renowned linguist, philosopher, and political analyst. He writes extensively and lectures around the world on international affairs, U.S. foreign policy, and human rights. Chomsky has published 15 books with South End Press, including Rogue States: The Rule of Force in World Affairs. David Barsamian lives in Boulder, Colorado, and is the producer of the award-winning syndicated radio program, Alternative Radio.

Solidarity and Mutual Support Praise for Noam Chomsky "An exploder of received truths."-New York Times "Noam Chomsky is one of the most significant challengers of unjust power and delusions; he goes against every assumption about American altruism and huniatrianism."-Edward Said "Reading Chomsky is like standing in a wind tunnel. With relentless logic, Chomsky bids us to listen closely to what our leaders tell us--and to discern what they are leaving out...The questions Chomsky raises will eventually have to be answered. Agree with him or not, we lose out by not listening."-Business Week Praise for David Barsamian "David Barsamian is the Studs Terkel of our generation."-Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States "In con

David Barsamian is a broadcast journalist and director of Alternative Radio. He is well known for his interviews of Noam Chomsky, which have been collected in several volumes. These include Chronicles of Dissent, Keeping the Rabble in Line: Interviews with David Barsamian, and Class Warfare: Interviews with David Barsamian. His interviews with Edward Said have also been collected, in The Pen and the Sword: Conversations with David Barsamian.

Noam Chomsky was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 7, 1928. Son of a Russian emigrant who was a Hebrew scholar, Chomsky was exposed at a young age to the study of language and principles of grammar. During the 1940s, he began developing socialist political leanings through his encounters with the New York Jewish intellectual community. Chomsky received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied linguistics, mathematics, and philosophy. He conducted much of his research at Harvard University. In 1955, he began teaching at MIT, eventually holding the Ferrari P. Ward Chair of Modern Language and Linguistics. Today Chomsky is highly regarded as both one of America's most prominent linguists and most notorious social critics and political activists. His academic reputation began with the publication of Syntactic Structures in 1957. Within a decade, he became known as an outspoken intellectual opponent of the Vietnam War. Chomsky has written many books on the links between language, human creativity, and intelligence, including Language and Mind (1967) and Knowledge of Language: Its Nature, Origin, and Use (1985). He also has written dozens of political analyses, including Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988), Chronicles of Dissent (1992), and The Prosperous Few and the Restless Many (1993).
